The Zunday project was launched at the end of the 2011 season when Gary Fox, Sebastian Jimenez and Keith Murray competed for the first time in the A Class, with player coach Ari Perelman in the lineup. Jon Agar joined the team for the 2012 season in the A Class, and Zunday attended four meets of the Florida Skydiving League, plus the NSL Championship in November.
Participants of the NSL Tunnel Kicker formed Pyro4ic in the meantime, and the new team joined the Florida Skydiving League in the Rookie Class at the August 2012 meet. Both teams came back this year in the same competition classes, and Pyro4ic moved up into the A Class in July 2013.
